't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of new jersey, things are getting worse. they're not getting better. the president's got to keep part of his concentration on this. and he hasn't been doing that. there is no substitute for the president not concentrating on. >> should he now come to new york, the president? >> president hasn't been to new york. president hasn't been to breeze y point. president hasn't been to staten island. people in staten island feel abandoned. he hasn't been there. >> he's obviously been to new jersey with the governor. do you think
president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that has enough with the wind at its back to carry him? >>
the parameters of the legitimate authority of the presidency. president obama is not pressing independents in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. . >>> residents of char lsten and other cities are awaiting sandy's approach. the exact time and location of landfall, who knows. the storm is currently in the atlantic ocean. meteorologist alexandria steele will be along with the latest on is the
? to chris's point, why not have some secondary surrogates, whether it's paul ryan or mrs. romney or the romney boys go to those states and just buying it. i remember that very well. even though, chris, the obama campaign is dismissing the idea romney is seriously competing in these states, should they have sparener to shore up those voti ttleground map, and this has been one of the asmall, narrow . you have battleground polls show you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii.
because he thinks president obama is the best person of the job. i don't think general powell is prone to make decisions on people based on skin color. i would agree strongly about the comments made by mr. sununu, even though i used to work under him at the white house. i think people base endorsements on who they think is the best person for the job. i am proud that an african-american is president of the united states. i happen to support mitt romney, and i made that decision based on the facts of what i think are the important issues that move me. i'm sorry that governor sununu made a comment like that. >> listening to what you are saying, joe, where is the outrage from your party about this statement? >> i think there are so many statements made in the closing days of the campaign, nobody is paying attention to the comments. the race is very close, and i agree with governor dean, endorsements don't mean a whole lot. except in a case like this. where the race will be razor thin, the margin of victory may be razor thin. any endorsement is certainly helpful to mitt romney in iowa. >>
